I will give it a listen - but at the moment I have to listen to that whole compilation thing again in order to get to the Tough Mama ...
I never actually liked that song much (It's All Over Now Baby Blue, I mean). Maybe Jerry will convert me - it's been known to happen ... for instance, the Simple Twist of Fate's, which I announced here awhile back I didn't like, I've changed my mind and I do like!

When you stream on sugarmegs you can move the timeline ahead you just can't fast forward track by track because there all one track(in windows media player).

Well, I find you can do that on some tracks and not others.

Oh, I love that one by the early DEAD, and JG "doing Bob" (others, I think have agreed that he sounds like he's trying to sound like Bob, but see what ya think) on BBlue...

OK, I did my homework.

Boy, on that 9/16/66 one, not only does he sound like Dylan, but he's doing a little wobbly thing with his voice like Elvis. It may be a one-time performance of It's All Over Now, Baby Blue Suede Shoes. I have to think the Dylan was more intentional than the Elvis, LOL.

I don't hear the Elvis thing so much on 7/16/66. But it's there a little tiny bit. I think he was just in the mode of figuring out his own stage presence; experimenting with how his voice should sound. Sounds like a really sweet show; now I have to listen to it! (And yes, it does sound Dylanish.)

The 11/8/70 is sure gorgeous. I actually don't hear the Dylan channeling in that one, though; it's as if he's gotten more comfortable being himself with the song. Which is actually some achievement. How can anyone sing Baby Blue and NOT try to be Dylan? Just try it! It's like patting your head and rubbing your stomach. No matter what, you'll end up wailing, "BAbee BLOooooooooo ..."

Btw, if you check out 4/6/69, it's still pretty Dylanish.

Yeah, I thought he was laughing at first. I don't think it quite worked.

You're cracking me up (or causing hearty guffaws, per UU) :)

Wow, that one is just amazing, I never heard it before.
Ok - I gotta listen to the Grateful Dead again!
